mind and that we really hate. so half of the sequester, a full half of it is defense. that is a huge, huge cut to defense. but it's actually worse than that for republicans. medicaid is completely protected from the sequester. social security, completely protected. most low-income programs, completely protected. medicaid beneficiaries, completely protected. veterans benefits, completely protected. pell grants, completely protected. so the sequester is these large spending cuts, but they mostly protect the core democratic priorities, and they concentration incredibly heavily on the spending republicans care about most. and that is because republicans cut this deal in order to not have tax increases in the sequester. so the idea that republicans can trade the democrats for a new sequester that has spending cuts democrats prefer, is ludicrous. the only thing that could trade the sequester for is something that includes tax increases, because the whole point of the sequester in the first place was, they couldn't find spending cuts democrats liked better. >> and in fact, talking poin

senator cornyn discussing why he opposes chuck hagel. >> i cannot support a nominee for defense secretary who thinks we should be tougher on israel and more lenient all around. we need a defense secretary who understands and fully appreciates the danger of a nuclear iran and the importance of the strong u.s.-israel alliance. >> do you think chuck hagel doesn't understand the danger of a nuclear iran? >> well, i think it's much more complicated than that. i think there are legitimate reasons, and i think folks like senator cornyn have good reason to have questions about senator hagel's viewpoint when it comes to looking at the -- at the american foreign policy. >> does the president deserve to have the -- >> i firmly believe when you get to choose the cabinet that you want and there, of course, is the advice and consent of the senate, and that's an important part of the process. i think that's why these hearings are going to be quite illuminating. i think you will see some changes from senator hagel based on some of the past statements that he has made. he has had some policy pre

nomination of chuck hagel to run the defense department. chuck hagel received two purple hearts in vietnam and walks around every day with shrapnel in his chest. it was pretty remarkable when we heard the reason why senator ted cruz says that those two wounded combat veterans are not going to get his vote in the senate. >> we've got two pending nominations, john kerry, chuck hagel. both of whom are very prominently anti-us. less than ardent fans of the u.s. military. >> they don't love the military. not like he does. he is the junior senator from texas. there are no medals for a declaration like that, but technically speaking, i think what we're supposed to say is that is some brass, senator. we'll have more ahead, including from hillary clinton. stay with us. by the a by the b] how do you measure happiness? by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. campbell's. ink ... is bigger than we think ... sometimelike the flu.fer from

happened on thursday when defense secretary leon panetta joined the joint chiefs of staff chairman martin dempsey and made this announcement. >> we must open up service opportunities for women as fully as possible. and therefore today, general dempsey and i are pleased to announce that we are eliminating the direct ground combat exclusion rule for women. and we are moving forward with a plan to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service. >> just like that, 200,000 military combat jobs that were once off limits for women are potentially open to any woman who meets the qualifications. more importantly, the official policy for women in the u.s. military has now caught up with what has long been the reality for women in the u.s. military. women already make up 15% of the overall force and 17% of the officers in the military, but the pentagon's latest decision update updates a 1994 policy change that prohibited women from serving in ground combat units. only, excluding women from combat units never excluded them from the consequences of conflict. women have been working

sovereignty. you can say who can come in and who can come out. you have borders that are defensible. within those borders, you have a democratic policy or whatever kind of regime you have. the state has a monopoly. this is all constituent pillars of what it means to be a country. when you say there are these negative costs to defending that border, making that border impenetrable or defensible, i think there are some people out there who say, well, look, there's costs to everything, but this has to be a priority because in some existential sense, we cannot be a nation unless we have this kind of thing. >> but there are differences with class, and what i think eliseo is talking about is why is it that enforcement comes out so heavily and so strong against people who are maybe from rural parts of mexico or central america? why is it you can allow for other countries to have access here as soon as they touch the shores? why is it that you can pay your way into this country also if you come from indonesia or china or other areas and have citizenship granted to you in a matter of time? so there'
